Description: Assessing the unique needs of the community you are serving as a health professional – particularly as it relates to working with ethnically and culturally diverse communities – is a critical skill for nurses and nurse practitioners. Clemson Nursing Professors, Dr. Rosanne Pruitt and Dr. Wanda Taylor, will be presenting a session on how to utilize service-learning throughout the nursing curriculum to enhance the learning experience for Nursing students. The presentation will also include remarks from faculty, students and community members.

Clemson University Collaborations in Service-Learning is sponsored by the Clemson Service Alliance. The Service Alliance promotes the use of community service and service-learning by Clemson faculty in classes with both undergraduate and graduate students in all major disciplinary areas. The Collaborations radio webcasts are an opportunity to hear from some of our Clemson Service Alliance Faculty Fellows, their students, and their community partners about service-learning projects around the state of S.C., and to learn about the impact of these service-learning projects on the community and on student learning outcomes. In 2014-2015, we will be focusing on service –learning classes in five different disciplinary areas: Planning and Landscape Architecture, English, Languages, Teacher Education, and Nursing. Thank you for participating, and we hope that service-learning practitioners in both K-12 and higher education will find these workshops very helpful in the course development, implementation, and evaluation process. This program comes to you as a public service of Clemson University. There is no fee, and no registration is required.
